  • The Boss PN-2

    This sounds like a really cool pedal!! Does the band Slowdive use it on the Souvlaki album?

    But, dude, some jerk is trying to sell one used for $200
    What the hell?

        Whaddaya goin' do? It isn't made anymore; it's idiotically overpriced. That said I had one for ten years and it never broke down. I got all boutiquey and gear snobby and sold the PN-2 because it was a boss for gods sake and tried:

        Menatone Pleasure Trem
        Perscription Electronics throb
        Diaz Tremodillo

        and a few others I forget.....I ended up buying another PN-2 and ended up putting it back on the board. It isn't "amp like" the way some of those other pedals are. I found I didn't really like "amp like" as much. But these days its like the DM-2 or 3; a good pedal stupidly overpriced because it's out of production. Its a little different from most trems; definitly more machine like and sterile-but it seems to stick out more and cut through better for me. Some of those so called warm, boutique amp like trems got lost for some reason....

              The PN-2 is pretty cool. It's not warm sounding or vintage sounding at all, it's a very modern sounding mechanical sort of tremolo. For the price it sells for now it's not really worth it.

              I replaced mine with a Demeter Tremulator which just has to be about the best tremolo ever...I couldn't imagine anything sounding better.

                    You sold it to me for $130. Thanks for the markup.

                    The only thing I don't like about it is the clicking "tempo noise".

                        I got mine for 20$, blinking LED did not work but that was an easy fix, I got it off a bassplayer
                        great tremolo, slight volume drop, but very decent tremolo ounds, anything from slow and soft pulsating to hard and fast chopper tremolo sounds, and the stereo panner is a nice bonus too.

                          I hate that there is no soft sound. the one cool thing I found was the triangle pan/trem with the depth maxed and the speed slow. It does volume swells.

                            Yeah, and I sold the RC-20 on ebay for $220. So I guess we both did ok.
